Egg-Chasing Time

To my untrained eye Boring Munster were the better team on Saturday. And that's all that matters.

But only the most blinkered Jonny-Come-Lately daytripper could claim that Munster's tactics in general and, what I believe is referred to as 'closing out the game' (or rugby's equivalent of running to the corner flag and trying to keep the ball there) for a full 15 minutes in particular, are anything other than utterly, utterly boring.

Or, to quote Donncha O'Callaghan in today's Guardian, "It's ugly but it's effective for us... It might be boring but who cares?"
